    Descriptor F (8 points): Cannot prepare and cook food

    I am unsteady on my feet - so, whilst I can put a pie in the oven - I would struggle to do anything with it after cooking - I could not carry it to a plate or move the plate afterwards to eat it.

    How would that rate me for points ?
    WW3 is coming - it's been almost 75 years since the last one - the next one will be FAR worse !
    So what's a few squabbles between politicians ??

    Then put that on your submission to the tribunal.

    The tablet dispenser (as an aid) is 1 point.

    Needing help to get in / out of the bath is potentially 3 points.

    If you scored 0 points and all the above points are awarded at tribunal, where are the additional 2 points to get you up to 8 points and a standard DL award?

    Dressing and undressing?
    Needing a rail to get on / off the toilet safely?

    Thanks for your help. I had my tribunal yesterday and have been awarded the standard rate for daily living, I got 8 points. No mobility award and I'm fine with that, they did award me 4 points and said I could ask for it to be looked at again but I don't want to risk it. The award is backdated to 13/12/2018 to run until 12/12/2021, although I'm aware I can be reassessed at any time.
